On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Luna Innovations (LUNA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Northland with analyst Tim Savageaux saying he sees the shares reflecting the value of the "well executed" sale of the Opto Solutions unit at current levels. 2. State Street (STT) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Brian Kleinhanzl warning that the deal has increased the risks for State Street investors, while the anticipated revenue synergies may not emerge. 3. Sunrun (RUN) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Stephen Byrd saying he thinks the stock now prices in favorable industry developments and a longer growth runway following its 60% appreciation since the start of April and 150% year-to-date advance. 4. Motorola Solutions (MSI) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Paul Coster saying he views the company's Q2 results as solid but feels the guidance is mixed. 5. Gildan Activewear (GIL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Desjardins. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Northland analyst Tim Savageaux downgraded Luna Innovations to Market Perform from Outperform as he sees the shares reflecting the value of the "well executed" sale of the Opto Solutions unit at current levels. He also sees increased uncertainties around larger scale M&A given Luna's increased cash balance and prefers to step to the sidelines. He maintains a $4 price target on Luna shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities by analyst John Heagerty, as his analysis leads him to increase his FY18 EPS view by 11% on average for the banks he covers. He also sees positive secondary effects for the banks from higher U.S. GDP growth. Heagerty raised his price target on Wells Fargo shares to $64 from $55. The analyst also upgraded Morgan Stanley (MS) to Overweight this morning, citing the same analysis of the potential benefits from tax reform. 2. Deere upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital by analyst Seth Weber, who said he is positive on the company's leadership position in North American farm machinery which is stabilizing and exposure to the earth moving equipment category. The analyst is also constructive on Deere's recent Wirten Group acquisition. 3. Target (TGT) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna. 4. State Street (STT) and BNY Mellon (BK) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi, with analyst Keith Horowitz saying he thinks the trust banks are the best way to play the digital transformation to the cloud and finds the current valuation as attractive. 5. RBS (RBS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. Analyst Alvaro Serrano also downgraded Barclays (BCS) and Lloyds Banking (LYG).

The analyst, who sees competitive pressure and rising interest rates as key risks, raised his price target on Sunrun shares to $15 from $8.

Neutral
Sunrun downgraded to Neutral at Goldman Sachs on valuation
As reported earlier, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee downgraded Sunrun to Neutral from Buy as part of his broader research note on the solar sector and also kept his price target at $15 citing valuation on the stock. The analyst states that Sunrun has already run up 160% year to date and also cites the shift in China's solar policy in late May along with the ensuing price collapse across the supply chain toward quarter-end, which raises the risk of margin misses and weaker Q3 guidance. Lee adds that China-levered names like Jinko Solar (JKS) and Canadian Solar (CSIQ) thus face particularly challenging demand outlooks. The analyst has the most constructive view on the U.S. residential installer Vivint Solar (VSLR), which stands to "benefit from lower module costs and what we expect could close the valuation gap relative to peers.

Motorola Solutions price target raised to $140 from $125 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst George Notter raised his price target for Motorola Solutions to $140 saying his "deep dive" indicates the Avigilon acquisition was a "great deal" for the company and remains underappreciated by investors. The analyst raised his estimates to reflect incrementally higher contributions from Avigilon going forward and keeps a Buy rating on Motorola Solutions. Avigilon is high-growth business with a similar margin profile and meaningfully expands Motorola's total addressable market, Notter tells investors in a research note. He believes expectations for the deal are too low.

Outperform
Motorola Solutions upgraded to Outperform on Avigilon contribution at Cowen
As previously reported, Cowen upgraded Motorola Solutions to Outperform from Market Perform and raised its price target to $138. Analyst Paul Silverstein significantly raised estimates to Street-highs driven by revised expectations for revenue and margin contribution related to the Avigilon acquisition, which provides entry into the advanced security surveillance solutions market. Additionally, the expected extension of the Airwave UK Public Safety Network contract, likely before the end of Q3, would also highlight the over-estimated risk posed by LTE-based public safety networks to Motorola's LMR systems, the analyst wrote in a note to investors.
